Day 1 Arrival in Guilin
Sincere greetings & airport-hotel transfer. Fubo Hill.
Our guide will greet you outside the customs of the airport holding a welcome sign on which your name is written, and then escort you to the hotel. Your Guilin tour will start by visiting the Fubo Hill. Half of the hill stands in the river and the other half of it on land, hence the name Wave-Subduing Hill (Fubo Hill) and making it with unique natural beauty.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Day 2 Guilin - Longsheng - Guilin
Guilin-Longsheng transfer. Rice Terraces, Villages of Zhuang Minority. Drive back to Guilin. (B)
Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces in Longsheng
Today's private sightseeing begins when we collect you from the hotel. Drive out of the city to Longsheng to visit the spectacular Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces which are on a grand scale. The terraces were made by hand about 650 years ago. It was a masterpiece of nature and wisdom of ancient people. Hike up the hill to the best viewpoint. There are lots of steps but along the way there will be stunning views of fabulous terraces stretching up and down the sides of the mountains and through the valleys. The area is dotted with minority villages where houses are usually built of wood. Here you will have a chance to have a close visit to the villages of Zhuang Minority People. At the end of the trip, we will transfer you back to the hotel. Today's lunch is on your own arrangement with our guide's help.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 3 Guilin - Yangshuo
Li River cruise to Yangshuo, Countryside trip. (B+L)
Yangshuo countryside scene
After breakfast, you will be collected from the hotel and transferred to the pier to board a luxurious cruise ship. Any Guilin tours will never be complete if not including Li River cruise. Enduring memories are created as you cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo, which takes around four hours. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery on both sides of the bank along the river. When breathing in cool fresh air, you would just become one with nature. Upon arrival in Yangshuo, you will have a short trip to the countryside. You will visit a local villager's home to experience the farmer's lifestyle. Check in at a hotel in Yangshuo.

Tips: Unfortunately the lunch served on the cruise is simple Chinese box lunch, which is not up to the standard that TravelChinaGuide would like. So we recommend you take a hearty breakfast at the hotel in the morning.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch

The brilliant lighting effects make the place more extraordinary. The Seven Star Park is the largest comprehensive park in Guilin including various plants, trees, flowers, waterfalls and rocks in different shapes. The Elephant Trunk Hill is the landmark of the city and cannot be missed before you leave this miraculous place. After the trip is completed, we will transfer you to the airport and see you off.

Stroller in Guilin Reed Flute Cave
We'll be visiting with our 18 months old. Can I bring a stroller into the cave or do we need to carry him for the whole tour?

Answered by Claire from GERMANY | Apr. 02, 2019 20:54

As I know, the scenic area doesn't provide the stroller. Thus you need to carry him for the whole tour.
